HHS will be honor him with a reception at the HISD Administration Building on Sunday, June 30, from 2-3 p.m. Everyone in the community is invited to attend.

Walker is well known for his wit. Students remember the sign he always hung by his wall clock, “Time will pass. Will you?”  He has given the message at many baccalaureates over the years and will be remembered for his heart-filled prayers at many of the high school’s functions. His classroom door was always open before school, at break, and at lunch for students that needed extra help.

During his 46 years of educational service, Walker also taught at Bowie High School and Randlett High School.  Walker will continue as pastor for the First Christian Church of Henrietta, where he has ministered since 1969.  He is also a member of the Clay County Ministerial Alliance.

When asked for his advice to students, he said, “Every moment is an opportunity to learn. Don’t waste the moment.”
